Wondering how traffic looks on Interstate 293 or Route 106? The New Hampshire Department of Transportation can help.
The department announced yesterday it would allow public access to its highway cameras through a private website, trafficland.com. The cameras update their images every 20 seconds and are located across the state, from Salem to Franconia and Portsmouth to Keene.
“The camera locations are tied to interactive Google maps, which display travel speeds over the road corridors as color-coded lines, so the viewers can quickly determine where a traffic slow down may be occurring, and bring up real-time video from nearby cameras to confirm travel conditions,” the DOT said in a news release.
